Fifty-five thousand, one hundred I

Francis this week by - the Southern
Pacific, railroad company in Linn
county. Only districts lying along
the right-of-way of the railroad will
secure school and road apportments
from this amount and the rest will
go into the general tax. Coincident
with this was the payment of the ,
smallest tax on the books thus * far,

amounted to ten cents. The Corval

Salem, March 17.—The attack of
Frank C. Stettler, a paper box
